For Chip: He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. —Unknown

Someone Saved My Life Tonight - Elton John Lyrics [on screen]

The Ride to Nowhere

Me and my dog Frosty

My car had overheated on my way home from work, and I had gotten out of the car.  It was steamy in Houston, and a man pulled up and asked if I wanted a ride.  It was unlike me, but I jumped into his car.  We drove down the road and he did not say much.  He never asked where I needed to go, but I had a sick feeling that all was not right. 

He was an older man wearing with a ruddy complexion, wearing a large white cowboy hat.  I was a naive brown eyed girl with long brown hair and in my twenty’s.

As we drove along I realized I had made a mistake and felt panicky.  I knew I needed to escape before it was too late.   His back seat was stacked with beer cans.  I wondered why I had gotten into the car. 

Suddenly, we got in more traffic and I became very uneasy.  How would I leave?  In a matter of seconds his car died.  He could not start it. He tried over and over.  Quickly, I jumped out of the car and ran.  I was free and never looked back. 

His car stopped for some unknown reason.  The only explanation was divine intervention.  That day I was lucky, and perhaps my life was saved.

From that day on I had believed that angels surround us.
